Politics again

I know, I know, I just did a political type blog, but this is too hard to resist. Stephen Harper our current Prime Minister is NOT a warm and fuzzy type. I got quite a chuckle a few years ago when George Bush called him Steve. He is NOT a Steve type. He has a reputation of being cold and arrogant. I don't know him personally so I can't say.

Another think you should now about the leaders of the three main political parties. They do NOT get along. That recent controversy a while ago when the Republican called The President a liar - that kind of thing goes on all the time in the Canadian parliament.

So it I got quite a chuckle when I heard a bit on the radio the other morning and then saw this on YouTube.

Stephen Harper, Prime Minister of Canada at a recent fund raising event. Apparently his appearance was a surprise to all.



Whodathunk he had a sense of humour. And I hear he's up in the polls.

I imagine this was all about gaining support. Showing a different side of him.... It is gaining international fans according to the news...

Too bad it takes more to run the country than the ability to sing a Beatles song out of key...

What politicians will do to gain votes is...scary!

Kailana: In the interest of full disclosure *g* I will admit I voted for him. But he had made me VERY angry at times with his control freakish way of governing and many of the things he has done (and NOT done) as a PM. But if you wanna loosen up, I can't think of a better way of doing it.

AL: It's probably the 'coolest' thing he's ever done. Cool isn't a word one thinks of when they think of Harper.

Kailana: When you've seen some of the acrimonious parliament sessions, it's even funnier.

Being the cynical sister of yours that I am, I have no doubt that Harpers "handlers" decided it was time once again for Harper to appear to be an actual "human" instead of the plastic anal-retentive person he is 99.9% of the rest of the time. He's already done the fuzzy wool sweater, kissing babies and the cute kitten thing. I am very afraid of what they will come up with next :)
